Don’t follow fashion trends indiscriminately:
Your feeling of comfort and harmony with what you wear is always more important than complying with the latest fad. Pick the trends that work for you.
Reflect your personality:
Nobody is perfect but everybody can make the best of themselves, expressing the unique person that is within. So, let the jewellery you wear reflect your personality: Bold jewellery on bold women, dainty jewellery on dainty women.
Draw attention to your best features:
Chokers (36-38 cm) attract the viewer’s eye to the neck. Avoid these unless you have a slender neck. Longer necklaces and particularly lariats make the bust the focal point while the really long rope-style necklaces draw the attention down the entire torso.
Sparkling or dangling earrings will attract attention to the face and bracelets and rings to the arms and hands. Be particular when purchasing necklaces and earrings. Rather than choosing shapes that repeat the shape of your face, select shapes that contradict it (although not to extremes). If your face is rotund, try square-shaped jewellery and ornaments, and experiment with medium-length dangle jewellery. Bony faces are best privileged with round jewellery – hoop earrings and chokers. Huge ear-rings may look out of place if you have a small face with fine topographies or short-cut hair. Hair damaged piled up is a great chance to wear long drop or dangly earrings.
A well-fitted hanging earring calls attention to your bears, which is the last feature to age on most women. But long hanging earrings on a woman with long hair can look muddled and messy. Tiny earrings on a large woman can give her a “fat-neck”-look while chunky “button” earrings are fabulous on a plump lady with lush hair-style.
Dramatic cocktail rings look very good on big hands with long fingers, but even smaller women can wear these successfully if they limit themselves to one piece at a time. The combination of 2 or 3 discreet rings is OK for smaller women while large women should avoid small rings altogether.
In overall, if you are a tiny person, tiring large or many pieces of jewellery can make you look childlike, but if you are a superior sized person, tiny jewellery will get lost on you which will make you appearance even larger. Wear jewellery that is in amount to your body, it will help unite your look.
Extravagant jewellery – uncluttered clothes:
Fancy jewels go best with simple necklines. Bold, heavy jewellery go delightfully with power suits and pants, and long necklaces with this season’s sweaters and cardigans. Delicate and female jewellery goes with blustery or elegant dresses.
When choosing jewellery, try to find colours that blend harmoniously with the colours of your clothes. Your jewellery should also coordinate with the fabrics in your clothing. Heavy beads don’t work with a thin silk blouse.
